------------------------------------------

             Summary: Add option to jaas LoginModules to skip checking the credentials
                 Key: KARAF-2219
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-2219
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: karaf-core
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Christian Schneider
            Assignee: Christian Schneider
             Fix For: 3.0.0.RC1


In some cases the user is already authenticated in some other way and a JAAS LoginModule should
only retrieve the roles of a user. 

For this case it makes sense to introduce an option like "checkCredentials" or "authenticate"
with default to true. If it is set to false in a jaas realm module config then the credentials
should not be validated.
